On Thursday at a promotional event, Ajinkya Rahane, India’s vice-captain in Test backed Rohit Sharma. He said that a batsman like Sharma should not sit out.

Rahane About Rohit

Ajinkya Rahane does not know whether Rohit Sharma will get a chance to open innings in Test against South Africa or not but if it happens, he will be happy for Sharma. He also added that it is tough to see Rohit out of the squad. “I don’t know yet whether Rohit will open the innings. If he does, I will be happy for him. I said in West Indies also, it is hard to see a special talent like Rohit sitting out.”

The deputy of Virat Kohli for the longer format also explained that after such hard work, Sharma would make the best of the opportunity comes in his way. “He has worked so hard and if he gets an opportunity, I am sure, he will do well.” Rahane expressed that nobody has doubt about his talent and he needs to play according to the format. “We all know the quality he has – special talent. Test cricket is all about mindset and ODI cricket, you can just go out there and back yourself. In Test cricket, sometimes if two bowlers are bowling good spells, you need to respect that and come out strong and play your game after that.”

Rohit looking for the opportunity

South Africans are here for a three-Test match series starting from October 2. After the selectors mentioned about Sharma opening this time, a lot has been talked about. So far, the hitman of ODI cricket has made 27 Test appearances for India, scoring 1,585 runs at 39.62 including three hundred and ten half-centuries. He is currently ranked at No.2 and No.8 in the MRF Tyres ICC Batting Rankings for One-Day Internationals and Twenty 20 Internationals, respectively. But he is yet to showcase his calibre and dominance in the red-ball cricket.

Experts opined about Sharma clicking as an opener even in Test. If this happens in reality, Sharma will undoubtedly give his best efforts to establish his place in the playing eleven.
